  • North sweeps pair from Central...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t exactly ‘by the book’, but North Bullitt basketball coach Korey Craddock will be the first to tell you that he has never seen ‘the book’.

    In a tight battle with arch-rival Bullitt Central on Tuesday, the Eagles were on their heels a little bit after the Cougars went on an 8-2 surge fueled by a pair of three-pointers from freshman Mason Shifflett. The second bomb pulled the maroon and gray within 51-43 with three minute to play.

  • Bullitt East archery off to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East archery team is off and winning to start the 2016 season.

    This past weekend, the team hosted its only tournament and had over 1,000 shooters present on Saturday, the largest event the program has hosted.

    The Chargers finished first as a team with a score of 3,393. Bullitt East’s Sydney Marcum was the top female shooter with a score of 295. On the boy’s side, teammates Sam Wilson and Aldon Stidom tied for third overall with a score of 294. Morgan Vaughn also had a high score of 289.

  • Sander named to head Bullitt...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After meeting some members and parents on Saturday night, new Bullitt East football coach Mark Sander admitted to being nervous.

    That might seem a little odd of a man who has coached for 12 previous seasons, as well as playing in major college bowl games and as well as on Sunday afternoons for three seasons in the National Football League with the Miami Dolphins.

    As Sander noted, getting back into coaching after two years on the sidelines has changed the concept a little.

  • Duvall returns to action

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Christmas came a little late for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and standout guard Lindsey Duvall on Thursday when the junior was cleared to return to practice and games after being out since mid-November following knee surgery for a cancerous growth.

  • BC turns around sour season with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when it looked like the Bullitt Central Cougars were toast, the maroon and gray turned the season around over a seven-day span, winning three of four games and gaining momentum and excitement for a late run into the post-season.

    Even the one loss, a 76-75 overtime setback to DeSales in the King of the Bluegrass Showcase on Saturday, had a number of positive points. The Cougars played without senior Chase Craddock, who was off on a football recruiting trip.

  • Eagles win three, drop one...

     HEBRON ESTATES – While the girls in the area were taking up most of the attention last week with the Louisville Invitational Tournament, the North Bullitt boys stepped outside of Jefferson County for four games in an eight-day span.

    First, it was back-to-back games against a pair of Oldham County teams. The Eagles actually beat the better of the two teams on the road as they rallied late to beat South Oldham 59-54 last Monday. A night later, at home, the Eagles came out on the short end of a 70-61 decision to North Oldham.

  • Region 3 Bowling Tournament

     LOUISVILLE -- There was no shortage of action last week at the Region 3 Bowling Tournament at Ken Bowl Lanes.

    On Thursday, the boys’ team competition was held, but it was a tough day for the three Bullitt County teams as none moved past the quarter-finals.

    It was a bigger day on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers upset defending champion Pleasure Ridge Park in the semi-finals before falling to Mercy in the final. That earned the team a spot in next week’s Kentucky State Tournament in Lexington.

  • Hot outside shooting lifts BE to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Some times things just fall perfectly into place.

    That was the situation for Bullitt East and Meade County last week as they got to play on Tuesday, albeit, four days later than previously planned.

    Even before the big winter storm hit, the two schools had been in contact and discovered that if they couldn’t play on Friday, which they couldn’t with almost a foot of snow, that both teams had the following Tuesday open. Even before the snow started piling up, the decision was made to move the game back four days.

  • Stat sheet yes; final score no...

     LOUISVILLE – The stat sheet looked just fine, but the final score trumped that for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold dropped a 68-60 decision to Christian Academy in the opening game of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

  • No Peak, no valley for East in...

     LOUISVILLE – The incredible shrinking basketball team picked up another win on Tuesday as the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rolled past Pleasure Ridge Park 58-41 in the opening round of the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.
